Way back in August, 2009, I posted my own recipe for Cheesy Steak Sandwiches and I have made them many, many times since then. I realized the last time I fixed these sandwiches that I had tweaked the recipe quite a bit since I posted it. That means it is time for an update! This is one of C’s favorite meals and I fix it regularly.
One of the big things that I changed was the type of steak I used. Back then, I just used whatever was in the freezer and sliced it as thin as I could before it was cooked. Not anymore! I now use a flat iron steak 99% of the time. I just buy them when whey are on sale and keep them frozen until I need them. Also, I grill first and slice later and found that it makes a wonderful difference. Here is my new take on an old favorite.
1 flat iron steak (This was was just under a pound and I got 4 or 5 sandwiches from it.)
1/2 tsp. Montreal steak seasoning
1 tbsp. olive oil
A-1 steak sauce
Sliced Provolone Cheese
Buns of your choice
Preheat the grill. I just use a little George Foreman for this and it works great. Season the steak with the olive oil and steak seasoning.
Grill the steak for about 8 minutes if it is completely thawed. Don’t worry if there is a little pink left in the center. It still has to bake in the oven for a few minutes. Let the steak rest for about 10-15 minutes, then slice as thin as possible.
Pile the steak on a bun, then add the A-1 and cheese.
Wrap each sandwich in foil and bake in a hot oven for about 10 minutes. I didn’t put an exact temperature on here because it really doesn’t matter. I usually make oven baked fries with these so I just throw the sandwiches in the oven for the last 10 minutes the potatoes bake.
